Royal Peak was all out to win by a head at Worcester on Monday and could be worth opposing here under a 7lb penalty. Jigsaw Financial was beaten off his new mark at Worcester last time and may also be in the handicapper's grip now, though does have the beating of William Percival on the form book. It's a long time since course specialist No Woman No Cry showed any worthwhile form while The Oystercatcher is still a maiden but BLUE SIGNAL has a won a chase and a couple of point-to-points and seems to enjoy fast going. He's fitted with a hood after a disappointing effort last month and is fancied to bounce back.
